Originally slated for release back in December last year, Square Enix‘s upcoming Outriders was first delayed to February, but now the studio has decided to delay its release once again, no doubt learning from the problematic launch of Cyberpunk 2077.

Taking to Twitter to announce the news, the game’s official account says “we have decided to move the release date of Outriders to April 1st, 2021 (no joke!),” explaining that the developer will “spend this extra time fine-tuning the game and focusing on delivering a fantastic play experience at launch.”

However, there’s also good news for those looking to play the game. In the same tweet, Square Enix also revealed that a free demo will be available in February for gamers who wish to give it a try before deciding whether to purchase the full version.

“We believe it’s important that players get to experience a new IP like Outriders before release so that you can decide for yourselves whether the gaming is something you wish to pre-order, purchase, or play,” the company says. “For this reason we’re excited to announce that on February 25th, 2021 we will be publishing a free demo, giving everyone the chance to play the first few hours of the game with all four classes – in both single-player and co-op – along with seamless migration of your character and progress to the full game.”

Outriders will be available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, Google Stadia, and PC.

Elsewhere in related news, over half of all Americans took up gaming in 2020.
